Just because it's winter doesn't mean your food can't look like spring. Bright, contrasting colors that the eye seems to crave during these dark days. And, yes, it is winter food. But pretty. And heartening.
This is nothing more than a braise/fry-up of delicata squash, cooked beans (plus a little bean water), shallots and spinach. Seasonings as you like. Add the items to the pan in order of how long they'll need the heat.
I find myself looking at my cooking vessels and wondering what they want cooked in them. Really. I have several shapes and configurations, and it gives me naughty pleasure to single out one or another for something special that belongs only in that dish. A swanky ceramic casserole with a lid. A sleek iron pot with a lid. Clever little individual ramekins.
And then I just ended up using a skillet.
